About our deadline dates

This guidance is designed to help you work out:

  • the next deadline for sending a community grant application
  • when you'll get a decision about your application

However, for all projects, we recommend that you submit your application as early as possible.

We always try to stick as closely as possible to these deadlines, but we may sometimes change them due to unforeseen circumstances.


Please do not begin your project or buy any materials until you've received our decision. If you do this, we will not be able to reimburse you.

Deadline and decision dates

For all projects we recommend that you submit your application as early as possible. 

We will not pay retrospectively, ie for costs incurred before we advise you of the decision made on your application. You must not start your project or purchase any items/activities that you wish us to fund before our decision.

Please refer to the dates below to ensure you submit your application in good time.

We will adhere to these dates as closely as possible though unforeseen circumstances may occasionally call for alterations to be made.

In all cases, applications must be submitted by midday on the deadline date.

Submission deadline by 12 Noon
